Spain consumer prices drop 1.1% in May

Spanish EU-harmonised consumer prices fell by 1.1% year-on-year in May, flash data from the National Statistics Institute (INE) showed on Monday, in line with a Reuters forecast and after a previous reading of a 1.2% decline.

INE data also showed Spain's national consumer price index fell by 1.0% in May on an annual basis, slightly less than a 1.1% decrease in April.

May's consumer inflation was affected by a rise in electricity prices after a fall in the same month last year, while the price of package holidays fell less than in 2015, INE said.
